Joe's Real BBQ: Lunch $10 and Under
One of the realities of living in this urban sprawl is that friends and relations can be scattered across the Valley from East to West and places in-between. We needed to find a place to dine with our motley crew. Cousins were in town, a baby had been born and there were a lot of hungry people to feed. We needed lunch that would please everyone so we headed to Joe's Real BBQ in Gilbert.
Joe's is informal, and perhaps a little hectic (like our family). You order cafeteria style from a big menu on the wall and help yourself to two BBQ sauces in paper cups as well as napkins, and flatware. The sauces come in both a traditional and the "I Dare You" made with Habanero chilis. The spicier one packed some tasty heat with not too much burn.
